World War II Topic in KS2, January 2017

The history topic for the Key Stage 2 pupils this term is all about World War II and what it would have been like to be a child living in the era.  So far, the children have learned about the reasons why the war started, about the effect of the blitz and about shelters (they have even made their own cardboard versions!)  The pupils are so enthusiastic about this topic that some have brought World War II artefacts into school to share with the class.  The photograph shows one of our Year 6 pupils trying on a sheepskin flying-jacket from the period.
